Read Zechariah 5.
That was confusing, wasn't it?
I have two study books that help me figure out Zachariah, one by Warren Wiersbe and one by Kay Arthur.
Wiersbe tells us that God cleanses and deals with sin. Kay Arthur reminds us that God judges sin.
This is rather a comforting chapter, really. I watch the news and I see such evil and horror happening in our world. Chapters like this remind me that God is in charge, and everyone will get what's coming to them.
But for those of us who have trusted in God's grace, "Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus, because the Spirit’s law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death." (Romans 8:1-2)
